Cannes Docs 2022 - Palestine Showcase of Docs-in-Progress
Jamal Hindawi (50), Palestinian, lives with his family in the Shatila refugee camp in Beirut, where he makes political theatre. Together with a group of friends, he is currently working on a play that tells the story of an old jacket that symbolises the Palestinian identity. One day, after the rehearsals, Jamal goes into the mountains with his friend Zreik and on the way there, he loses the jacket on a bus. A journey unfolds that takes Jamal from the mountains through Beirut, a city in radical transition. The successive crises and protests have left deep scars.
